Gears of War, Unreal Engine and Fortnite developer Epic has a string of fancy pants events planned for the annual Design Innovate Communicate Entertain Summit in Las Vegas next week.

The first of the developer’s efforts is a lecture from founder Tim Sweeney, called Technology and Gaming in the Next 20 Years.

President Mike Capps will lead a panel called Staying Around, Playing Around with Blizzard’s Frank Pearce, and Insomniac Games founder and CEO Ted Price.

Epic expects to have a good time at the 15th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards, too. In addition to Sweeney’s Hall of Fame induction, presented by vice president Mark Rein, Gears of War 3 and Infinity Blade II have scored three nominations between them. The awards after party is Epic-sponsored, too.

Sounds like a good show for our favourite birthday boys and girls. The DICE Summit kicks off on February 7 – with a poker tournament – and runs through February 10.
